Hey Bristol here I prefer 30 chickens
15 at most!
I currently have 22 chickens. I probably wouldn't want more then 30.. I am not sure, I like the amount I have..
I'd love 20 birds. I've have my original 6 and 1 silkie hen, 1 Legbar Roo, 2 Legbar Hens, and 10 show birds. That way they divide evenly ;D
I'd love to add about five chickens to my flock, making it an even twenty... I've been looking into Salmon Favs
I like to keep 20-30 hens and several roosters, that's about all I care to buy feed for. I let a few broody hens sit this year and now I have 60 chickens trying to eat me out of house & home, not to mention the 50 quail somebody gave me last month. It's time to start swinging the hatchet and thin the flock!
20-30 its the best for my coop ....... maybe after some years i will make another coop for another spieces...maybe duck... who knows
I have been trying for years to keep my flock down to some kind of manageable size
but it seems every time I get to the size I would like something bad happens like a
bob cat, fox or something but just to keep the feed bill down I like about 20 chickens
but right now after recovering from a strong offence from mother nature sending
wave after wave of bob cats some times as many as four cats at a time I am starting
all over again with three RIR's all laying right now sixteen EE's at two months of age
and fresh in the brooder one week twenty five Orloff's these I have never had before
but nice color..... I am sure by June Craigslist will be listed with some of these
chickens I deem as overages ..........
Had 30 here but they got to much so now I have 8 hahaha. Getting more but!
I have 16 that seems okay.
